This editorial design was done for the cover of a magazine with the headline article, “7 science-backed reasons you should make art, even if you’re bad at it”. The article discusses science-based reasons to why art helps you cognitively. The more you are away from technology and distractions, focusing simply on creativity allows your brain’s capacity to flourish.
Thinking of that article I dove in to sketches. At first I tried too hard to ad excessive detail. I added a TV, laptop, homework, etc. Though the distractions were clear, the design was too loud. So after working that out I stuck with something more simple. My next idea was the final, a brain in a paint can of creativity.
